I understand it's "just the internet" but us folk using "just the internet" have had our own personal things to go through (like everybody does). Which means, we may already have conflicting views about relationships or been made to feel we're not worth it enough for anybody to even want to be in a relationship with us. Then, you come on here and read all these questions and takes about relationships and it can make you feel worse or make you wonder "what's even the point?".
So, do you feel this website has added to or could add to yours or someone else negative mentality about dating/relationships?

No I think it has expanded my view on dating/relationships - The more questions and answers I read, I take the information in and analyse it picking the advice I deem most suitable to me which is the same approach I would have if in real life I was discussing it with family, friends or work colleagues.0

The internet can be wonderful or dangerous place... sometimes social media can get to be a bit too much and a bit too real to the point where it mentally messes with you. That's when you know it's time to log off and give your self a chance to clear your head. When I was younger I remember joining a cultural forum and got pretty invested in it during my off time... it really messed with me though and skewed my views about certain things which I'm still trying to shake off to this day (it's been almost 7 years). Moderation and stepping out when you need it is key, and I think it's because ironically the internet gets too real sometimes with people opening their minds and getting dramatic or argumentative and brutally honest.0
